This year’s convention promises to be the biggest and best yet! The convention is held each year in Denver, Colorado, and is geared for you, the storm chaser, spotter and storm enthusiast, to be the premiere gathering of the year. Because of the intense severe storm and hurricane season that 2008 brought, we have been able to gather some of the best scientists and forecasters in the world to present at this year’s convention. Dr Steve Lyons, hurricane expert for The Weather Channel, will be this year’s keynote speaker. From the National Hurricane Center, we welcome lead forecaster Dr Jack Bevens.

On the severe storm side, we welcome Dr Greg Forbes from The Weather Channel, and are also excited to welcome back Dr Howie Bluestein. We are also excited to have Rich Thompson, lead forecaster at the Storm Prediction center, as well as meteorologist Jon Davies. Tim Marshall will once again bring is attention getting presentation to our convention. We have several other speakers that you won’t want to miss!!! So sign up early and tell all your friends to come to the 2009 National Storm Chaser Convention.

  1. I notice that this Convention covers the Valentine’s Day weekend.

    I can just see now trying to explain to my wife that I can’t take her out for a big date because I’m going to be hanging out with a bunch of weather geeks like myself.

    I guarantee that I would not be make it back on Sunday in one piece.



  2. Agreed. What you have to do though is convince your wife it is for the good of the family that you go. The more educated you are the more educated you will be about severe weather and the better you can protect them. 🙂
